Total Agreement, Total War

Try as I may, I cannot raise a single objection to anything in this article:

Debate and discussion with any of the manifestations of the left is a non-starter since the left does not debate or discuss. It adheres to a rigid orthodoxy that will allow no reconsideration or reflection on the putative axioms it regards as sacred. It is, in essence, the contemporary version of Bolshevism. The left will lie, slander, cheat and commit violence to further its goals. Its mind is deadbolted shut.

And unlike pontificators (like Z-Man) who do a great job of diagnosing the problem, but have no other answers other than vague nostrums of “organizing” — such as discussed here:

Remaining content with radio talk, podcasts, interviews, essays and articles that alert the public to the impending disaster, though not to be scanted, is only a necessary first step. Delivering an angry vote may stave off the brunt of the calamity for an interval, but will not significantly alter the dynamics.
In the present situation, the trouble is that Trump’s greatest virtue—arbitration, diplomacy, compromise, carrot-and-stick—is also his critical vice. He may be excellent on trade and the economy, but does not seem to understand that on the home front in today’s political and cultural climate, the art of the deal does not work. The Democrats in their current disposition are not interested in dealing. Antifa is not interested in negotiating. A totalitarian plutocrat like George Soros, who as a youth collaborated with the Nazis and is proud of it, is not interested in consultation. The media are not interested in reporting the truth.
The Democrats, for example, are no longer an established political party but a revolutionary organism bent on scrapping the Constitution. Antifa is a guerilla outfit reminiscent of Hitler’s Brown Shirts, the Red Brigade and Baader-Meinhof. The media have become outright propaganda bullhorns for the left. None of these are trading partners. They are not economic rivals. They are not foreign nations that have to take American military power and punishing tariffs into account. They are fifth columns that are irremediably corrupt, extremist by nature, and absolutely relentless.

David Solway has a plan.  

I have argued that Trump must bring anti-trust legislation to bear on the major internet platforms and search engines now practicing overt censorship on users they oppose and to redefine them as public utilities. He must go further. His initiative on the census citizenship question is laudable but insufficient. He must use the means at his disposal, as did Lincoln, to confront the domestic enemies of the republic with uncompromising force: to declare Antifa an enemy of the state and arrest its financial backers on grounds either of sedition or treason, to be determined by a military tribunal; to bring Democrat politicians who have betrayed the nation (selling 20% of Uranium One to the Russian firm Rosatom, promoting the Benghazi scandal that cost four Americans their lives, weaponizing official agencies like the IRS and FBI, spying on its political opponents, streaming illegals and Third World immigrants to camber the demographics in their favor, subsidizing Iran with pallets of cash, accepting donations and colluding with foreign nationals) before the courts; and to de-license journalists and their media organizations that are in clear violation of the SPJ Code of Ethics.

In other words, Trump has to become what the Left has been claiming (baselessly, of course) that he already is:  a ruthless foe of the Left and someone who does not compromise with those who themselves aren’t prepared to compromise.  In other words, the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the nation needs to fucking do his job and direct the agencies that report to him to do their jobs.  And fire the ones who refuse.

We have all these laws that are supposed to protect us, protect the Republic and our way of life.  I would suggest that at this point, a failure to do the above would be the grossest act of betrayal by our elected President.

For the real and imminent threat to the republic comes not from Russia, China, Iran or North Korea. It comes from within: from the gatekeeper dot-coms, from the legacy media, from the Democrat Party, from billionaire tycoons laboring to dismantle the nation, from the social justice consortium, from political actors in the municipal and jurisprudential realms who support insurgency and do everything they can to thwart the president’s initiatives, from educators who have turned schools and universities into indoctrination camps, and from Guevara-like cadres growing bloodier and more frenzied by the day. If this is not a clear and present danger that portends the death of a nation and the eventual birth of a Marxist-like dictatorship, then nothing is.

The enemy is not at the gates;  he is inside the walls, and already well-entrenched.  We need — no, we insist on — massive and all-encompassing legal warfare against this virus that will destroy this country.

Only the President can do that.  Only this  President can do that.  And it’s time.

  1. The problem with that approach is that Trump is not a dictator, as much as the opposition would like to paint him as. He needs the legislative support of his own party, which has been sorely lacking in the last three years. His efforts to effect significant change are as often opposed by the Republicans as by the Democrats.

    I give Trump a lot of credit for what he has been able to accomplish. I also give the establishment GOP (spit) credit for being a crew of spineless, money sucking weasels.

    1. Nothing Kim listed requires dictatorial powers. It simply requires the President to exercise the political will to use the well established powers of the office.

  2. What Solway recommends should have begun about 20 years ago when incremental corrections could have been effective.

    That said, what we have now is what we have now; there is a small cadre of potential actors – Trump, a few still-stalwart allies in some corners of government, and, a very few businesses plus a quite substantial number of ordinary citizens – who have the necessary understanding of conditions, and are capable of acting, and supporting the necessary action (it should not be inferred that “a quite substantial number” means “a majority”).

    I suspect it will not be enough, and, once again, it will fall to The Citizens to resolve the problem. And The Citizens are a very blunt instrument, a rough-hewn club rather than a scalpel. What we need is a scalpel wielded by a trained and knowledgeable technician(s), excising the diseased organs without destroying the patient; what we’re going to get is a 4X4 swung broadly by Og once Joe and Jane Citizen take charge, obliterating the diseased organs without regard for surrounding tissue.

    That may not kill the patient outright, but there will be a need for a quite healthy dose of life support and rehabilitation afterward, and I have severe doubts as to whether adequate, or even, any, resources exist for that.

    Sporty times, they’s a-comin’, one way or another, either from antibodies rallied by the cancer itself or coarse treatment options applied in desperation by anxious and inadequately trained therapists.

    1. A positive is that the “life support” required for recovery will not be “universal”, as the vanquished foe for the most part will be unable to respond to treatment, and those that are will have a high hurdle to surmount to acquire such.

  3. “None of these are trading partners. They are not economic rivals. They are not foreign nations that have to take American military power and punishing tariffs into account”

    They are sadists. They want the unbeliever to suffer, and submit in willing humiliation. This is the behavior they show even amongst their own, when competing in shame culture games of displaying the measure of their “dignity”, and when bringing followers in line.

    The more the left becomes entrenched the more it is in shown to be a tool for Cluster B personalities, a means by which to first create neuroses, and then to control the neurotics.

  4. From The Dictionary of Democratic Socialism:

    Debate: That period of time when you tell those who oppose you what you want them to do, until 1) they do what you want, or 2) you gain enough power to force them to do what you want. Or, are able to wipe them out.
